The Southeast Michigan BSD User Group meets monthly for presentations, discussions, socializing, and networking. Local BSD folks involved include BSD author Michael W Lucas and OpenBSD alumni Nick Holland.
Location: Altair Engineering, 1820 E. Big Beaver Rd. Troy MI 48083 . We're in the Innovation Center, easily accessible from the front lobby. If you're not sure you're at the right place, once you go into the lobby you'll see a great big glowing triangular logo looming over you. It's highly impressive.
USUAL AGENDA: Meetings run something like this.
- Lucas tries to give the job of chairman to someone else
- Welcome and abuse of new members
- Jobs offered and needed
- Tech questions (no answers, only questions)
- Official meeting adjourns
- Dinner and answers to questions

If an out of town visitor appears at the last minute--say, if the lives of Bob Beck or Peter Wemm take a ghastly turn that brings them to Detroit -- we reserve the right to change dates, speakers, and pretty much everything so that we can fully exploit their presence.
